Dark Chocolate Cherry Clafouti
Instructions
  1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 350 F. Butter a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking dish. I use a glass pie plate with good results. Arrange the chocolate and cherries (or other fruit) in the prepared dish. Omit the chocolate, if desired.
  2. Blend remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour mixture over fruit, then dust batter on top with cinnamon to taste. Place the dish on a baking sheet. Bake until browned, 45-55 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool for about 15 minutes, then dust with confectioners' sugar or more cinnamon if desired and serve warm. Serves 6-8.
  3. Should there be leftovers, a slice warmed slightly in the microwave and enjoyed with coffee or tea makes for a delightful breakfast treat.
